The 100-Year Forecast: More Extreme Weather

Earth Science: Climate Change
October, 2006
The recent spate of heat waves and heavy rain and snow storms afflicting certain parts of the globe could become more widespread by the end of the century, scientists say.

An international team of researchers formed their conclusion after running computer simulations predicting what future weather patterns around the globe will look like if levels of greenhouse gases continue to rise as expected.

The simulations were run three times, with greenhouse gases set at either low, medium or high. All three scenarios predicted increases in extreme weather but differed regarding their frequency.
